issue? should the republicans stick with the nra or tell wayne lapierre to get a real job? how could a party built other the decades on the people who left the democrats abandon those issues that attracted the rule south and the west people and the miners and the ranchers and the gun owners. and the people furious about immigration. how do you ban those people and keep a party? tonight an expert, a passionate believer that politics can get better. my colleague joe scarborough. here's the question. how do you keep this huge tent the republican party has built in the last 30 or 40 years with people from the south, the west, the miners, the ranchers, the religious right, all those people that have decided the republican party is their natural home and yet you have people in the fringe costing you your image. >> well, you've got to stand up to people on the fringe. you know, when parties go extreme they get roundly defeated. it happened to democrats in 1984. it happened to the republican neocons on 2006. it happened in the off-year elections back in 2010. americans thought democrats went

by paranoid people like the woman from kentucky who calls president obama a muslim, wayne lapierre who says black people will loot and riot, so everybody needs guns -- host: on guns? caller: when we get these people home and they do not have jobs because congress is blocking jobs, and they have ptsd, and we have all these problems in this country, i am wondering, should these people have access to 30- round assault weapons? guest: henry, thank you for your call and comments. the basic idea -- you're touching on issues like gun control and many other different things. the question is, can our people come back from afghanistan and have an gainful employment when they come back? the answer has to be, the nation has to do it in such a way that the answer must be yes. the reality of the situation is that unfortunately for many veterans, their unemployment rate is many -- is much higher than it should be, particularly in comparison to their civilian peers. this is a wake-up call for employers to take a look and see what they can do to help veterans that have so valiantly fought for our country in
'm a shooter and an nra member and i think wayne lapierre is a bean bag and he doesn't speak for me.

that decide to go south and go with wayne lapierre on universal gun background checks. because he's going to throw money into those races and he will beat them. >> the mayor is a dangerous guy on this. he's a guy with many billions of dollars, committed to spending it, committed to this cause with a team of very sharp political operatives around him. tough political operatives. committed to the cause. they can change the equation on this in a lot of districts. >> i have to say also the thing that surprises me is how clear eyed they are. know though exactly what's possible, they know what is not possible. they're not around to waste time. they are targeting these races, and they're going to go after moderate republicans and moderate democrats. bloomberg, worth $24 billion, will put in more, and he will win. so it changes the dynamics. >> and you really can't complain, if you're receiving support from the nra and you're riding on that, then you really can't accuse the mayor of buying anything because you're bought already. still ahead madeleine albright will be here. top republicans insist
